From: Eric Gordon <Eric_Gordon at>

For the last few years, I, along with my co-editor Paul Mihailidis, have 
been working on a book project about the range and diversity of civic media 
examples. What started as a modest collection of chapters, has turned into 
a two-part behemoth: one part print book and one part sizable online 
collection of case studies from academics and practitioners from around the 
world. The book won’t be published until early next year (by MIT Press), 
but I am happy to say that the online behemoth is officially ready for 
consumption. The Civic Media Project (CMP) is a collection of over 100 case 
studies on a range of topics, from open government in New York to hashtag 
activism in Brazil to mobile money in Somaliland. The cases have been 
vetted through an open peer review process, so most of the cases are 
already accompanied by a rich dialogue and critique. There is also a guide 
for educators interested in bringing the CMP into the classroom.

Here’s the link:

Please give it a look and share widely with your networks. I’m proud of the 
collection and all the hard work that went into it from so many 

All the best,
